Polis Calls on Congress to End Marijuana Prohibition

Speaking alongside industry advocates, U.S. Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO) called Wednesday for Congress to end the prohibition on marijuana, stressing the need to reduce drug violence while hailing the medical cannabis market's capacity for growing the economy. "Ending the failed policy of prohibition with regard to marijuana will strike a major blow against the criminal cartels that are terrorizing Americans and Mexicans on both sides of the border," Polis said at the National Press Club, in response to a question from Raw Story. "It's been estimated that the drug cartels drive about half of ...

Jared Polis has ideas for closing federal budget gap

Although the so-called Gang of Six's proposalfor averting debt-ceiling catastrophe is getting the lion's share of attention right now, Representative Jared Polis has floated some revenue-raising ideas of his own, which the media has largely winnowed down to this: Legalizing marijuana would help close the budget gap. But if that shortchanges some of his other notions, Polis's spokesman isn't complaining. "You can't really blame the media for focusing on a controversial issue when you raise a controversial issue," says Polis communications director Chris Fitzgerald. "If it brings attention to ...

Young, Polis introduce bill to provide innovative way to finance higher education
Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO) and Rep. Todd Young (R-IN) today introduced a bipartisan bill that would help provide more affordable student loan options. The Investing in Student Success Act of 2015 provides the legal certainty for an innovative type of funding mechanism, called Income Share Agreements (ISAs), that can help students more easily finance a college degree, while including important consumer protections. Under an ISA, a student receives private funds in exchange for agreeing to pay an affordable percentage of his or her income for a set period of time after school. And, unlike a loan, an ISA has no principal or interest; instead, an ISA bases a student’s payments on income, and funders only recoup their money when students are successful. “A college degree is one of the best investments a student can make,” Polis said. “Unfortunately, many students are burdened with record levels of debt because of it, often forcing them to delay other important investments in their fu
Polis Introduces Bill to Streamline FAFSA
Rep. Jared Polis (CO-02) joined Reps. Phil Roe (R-TN), Joe Heck (R-NV), and Mark Pocan (D-WI) today in introducing a bipartisan bill to streamline the process by which students apply for federal financial aid for college. The Simplifying the Application for Student Aid Act would allow students who are filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) application to use family income data from two years prior, rather than one year prior. This would help students apply for financial aid earlier so they can better prepare for their college costs. “For many students and families, federal aid makes a college degree possible,” Polis said. “But too often, the cumbersome application process leaves many families without much time to plan for the costs of financing a degree. Our bipartisan bill would improve this process by allowing families to start the application process sooner, helping them better prepare for their future.” "Simplifying the FAFSA and using two-year o
Polis joins civil rights leaders to unveil comprehensive LGBT equality bill
Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO) today joined Reps. David Cicilline (D-RI) and John Lewis (D-GA) and Senators Jeff Merkley (D-OR), Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), and Cory Booker (D-NJ) to introduce a landmark bill that would extend civil rights statutes to end discrimination against LGBT individuals. Specifically, the Equality Act would amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and other existing laws to prohibit discrimination based on actual or perceived sexual orientation or gender identity in the areas of employment, education, credit, housing, federal funding, jury service, and public accommodations. The bill incorporates the substance of a bipartisan measure that Polis has introduced every session of Congress since 2010 – the Student Non-Discrimination Act (SNDA) – aimed at preventing discrimination against LGBT students in public schools. A companion measure to SNDA received a historic vote in the Senate last week, garnering the support of a majority of Senators. Today’s comprehensive bill al

Startups add enormous value to our local and national economies and they’re responsible for a majority of the net job growth in the U.S. Polis will mark Startup Day Across America next Wednesday by visiting the below startups along the Front Range. He’ll be joined in the afternoon in Broomfield and Boulder by 9-year-old entrepreneur Jack Bonneau, of Broomfield, who founded “Jack’s Lemonade Stands.” The stands operate each weekend at farmers markets in Erie, Lafayette, Louisville, and Westminster and are designed to help teach fellow kids about math, money, sales
